This appears to be a replacement series for ABC. Jack isn't bad here, but he isn't Jim Jordan, Jack Benny or Fred Allen. It's still entertaining, and as only two shows are extant, they are important as a historical vehicle for showing Jack Webb's evolution in broadcasting.
Webb would later revisit comedy (usually doing over-the-top parodies of his Friday role in Dragnet) on TV specials.

Jack Webb at his Zaniest?
I really enjoyed the two Jack Webb Show transcriptions (no it's not). Good to hear Mr. serious let loose for a change. Made me laugh more than once.

Just the Silliness, Ma'am.
This has got to be one of the silliest programs in the OTR canon. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but some of the jokes take the loooong way around to get to the punch line. Listen sharply to the Razor in program 1 if you like puns and a finish that will leave you wishing you had shaving cream in your ears!
Kind of fun to hear Webb in something so different from "Dragnet." You might call it a much more casual Friday.
